I took a tour to Texas
And from Waco I called you
But day by day, no answer
And I'm Big Bluebonnet blue

I'm singing and they're dancing
But I'm feeling Big D bad
I'm Sweetwater beat
And I'm Texas City sad

The rhythm keeps me living
But have you heard the news
There's a sad song singer coming
With the rockabilly blues

It's hard to keep on singing
When you're lonesome to the bone
Ten thousand happy people but I'm San Antone alone
One night stands and the man demands

That I get up and go
I'm Odessa desperate
And San Angelo low

The rhythm keeps me living
But have you heard the news
There's a sad song singer coming
With the rockabilly blues

It's the same old tune in Temple
About the loving I ain't had
I'm getting Beaumont bitter
And Amarillo mad

I'm giving up on calling you
'Cause you're evading me
I'm coming home and if you're gone
I'm gonna be Tennessee free

The rhythm keeps me living
And have you heard the news
There's a sad song singer coming
With the rockabilly blues
